Welcome was Jte in hul and hall, To mnids and matrons, pears and peasents He won the sympathies of all, 'By making puns and making prcsanls. Though all the parish was at suite, lie hett his counsel and his Muring, And laughed, aud loved a quiet life, And shrank from Chancery suits and Mar riage. "Sound was his claret aud bis head, Warm was his double ale and feelings His partners at the whist club said That be was faultless in his dealings. Tie went to church but once a week. Yet Dr. Poundtext always found him An upright man, who studied Creek, And liked to see his friends around him. IVesylums, hospitals, and schools, He used to swear weie made to cozzen, All who subscrib. d to them were fools, And JiemAsaribed to half a dozen. It was bis doctrine that the poor Were always able, never willing, And so the beggar at the door Had first abuse, and then a shilling. Some public principles he had, But was no flatterer nor frctter; He rapped his box when things were bad, And said, "I cannot make them better," And much be loathed the patriot's snow And much hescorned the placeman's snuf fle, And cut the fiercest quarrels short, With "Patience, gentleman, and shuffle." For full ten years his pointer, Speed, Had crouched beneath his master's table, For twice ten years his old white steed Had fattened ir his master's stable. Old Quice averred upon his oath, They were the ugliest beasts in Devon; And none knew why he fed them both, Why his own hands, six days in seven. Whene'er he heard his ring or knock, Quicker than thought the village slatterns Flung down the novel, smoothed the frock, And took up Mrs. Classe aud patterns. Adelle was studying baker's bliss, Louisa looked the queen of knitters, Jane happened to be hemming frills, And Bell, by cbanee, was making frittcs. But all was vain, and while decay Came like a tranquil moonlight o'er him, And found him gouty still and gay, With no fair nurse to bless him; His rugged smile and chair, His dread of matrimonial lectures, His wig, his stick, his powdeted hair, IW ft f. were uiemes ior vry strange conjec tures: Some sages thought the stars alone Had crazed him with excess of knowl edge; Some heard he had been crossed in love Before he come away from college; Some darkly hinted that his Grace Did nothing great or small without him, Some whispered with a solemn face, That there was some thing odd about him, J found htm at three score and ten A single man, but bent qute double. Sickness was coming on him then, To take him from a world of trouble. He prosed of sliding down the bill Discovered he grew older daily, One frosty morn he made his will The next he sent for Dr. Baily! And so he lived and so he died When last I sat beside his pillow, He shook my hand "Oh me," he cried, "Penelope must wcot the willow. Tell her I hugged her rosy chain While life was flickering in the socket, Asid ey that when I oall again I'll bring the license in my pocket.

As he sat watching the smoke which curhd so gracefully, his fancy glowad with the idea how delightful it would be to have the dear creatures fonding him. and with their tender glances endeavoring to do the agreeable. As he meditated, his heart softened, and he began to feel a squeamish, womanish sensibili ty diffused over his feelings, and he thought he would faint with propriety the first time a lady squeezed bis hand. Rap, rap, rap, sounded the door. Samuel peeped through the Yenitian blinds. "Mercy!" exclaimed he, if there isn't Miss Jones and I in dishabille, and look like a fright--good gracious! I must go and fix my self." He left (he room- Miss Jones entered, and with a composed air intimated that she could wait, She was a firm believer iu woman's rights, and now that the season was propitious, she determined to take the advantage thereof, and do a little couiting on her on hook. It was one of woman's privileges which had been usurped by the tyrant man, and she determi ned to assert her rights in spilp of the hollow formalities of the falce system of society. On Sam's return to the room, she exclaim- fcd.

Detroit TriL, A SECOND ULYSSES. An old nan of very acute physiognomy, an swering to the name of Jacob WilmoJ was brought before the police court of Philadel phia. His clothes looked as if they might have been bought s-cond handed in his youthful prime, for they had suffered more from the rubs of the woi Id than the proprietor him self.

A handsome woman that will stay at home, an eloquent preacher that will preach a short sermon, a good writer that will not write too . ..... . , , much, and a fool tliat has sense enough to now his tongue. What do von censure? a i .( l c. j, A tnnn n'hn marrmc n fri r for her tinp flanC- ing, a vouth who studies law or medicine while he has the use of his hands, and people 1 who elect a aruntartt or Diockneaa to oi- lice.

"Which I would not keep digging my elbows into your side; well, keep awake then; take care of your end of the schooner, and I will take care of mine. "As I was saying, it will take just twelve yards for a dress, and five for the bree trou sers! Laugh away! Laugh away Caudle, I don't care what you call 'em, if I get 'era on. "If I do wear 'em you'll put on petticoats, will vou? All I have to say to Ihat is, that you will then appear in your true colors and not be such a walking lie as you are now. But there is no help for it, as I know, any way, that neither here nor there. Shall I have the Bloomer or not, Mr. Caudle?" Hereupon Mr. Caudle groans out a faint "yes," muttering as he turns over "I wish I never had been born, I do;" to which bis wife devoutly rcsponds-."Amen." jfctTSanta Anna has issued a decree forbid ding the making any caricatures of himself or any of his ministers.

Table talk, or knocking, some time leads to embarrassing result, as i proved by the following gossip: A party met the other night, and formed a chan, and when the 'fluid' was in a movement, a married lady present put the questioo: 'How many children have I?' 'Tap, tap, tap. Up, or four replied table. True, wonderful!' exclaimed the lady and all the otheis. Presently the husband came in and asked the same question. Tap, tap, or two, was the answer. The effect produced by that may be better imagined than described.
